Landscape is more than just scenery, it’s the bedrock upon which our society is built. Although some people just leave their yards as is, many others realize that landscaping can provide their home or business with a great deal of value. A well-landscaped yard is not only a beautiful sight to behold, but provides functional benefits that contribute to our well-being and quality of life. In this introductory blog, we’ll go into detail about the benefits of various landscaping projects, our history, and the kinds of services we offer at Edward’s Lawn & Home.
The Benefits of a Better Landscape
So what can a professional landscaper do for you? Whether it’s simple lawn care maintenance or a beautiful hardscape installation, a landscape project will provide significant benefits. For example, your landscape is also a first impression, meaning it can play a big role in your property’s selling power. With a professional landscaper you can:
- Increase the value of your property.
- Make your property more attractive to prospective buyers, reducing time spent on the market.
- Reduce heating and cooling costs.
Health and Social Benefits
- Create a more beautiful environment that also promotes privacy.
- Add functional dining and living spaces.

- Improve livability in high density developments and communities.
- Reduce stormwater runoff and improve yard drainage.
- Control erosion and reduce loss of soils.
- Conserve natural resources.

Some homeowners will make the claim, “It will be cheaper for me to do my own landscaping.” It’s understandable to have some anxiety when taking on any large project, especially one that affects something as important as your home. However, with Edward’s Lawn & Home we ensure that you will receive a quality product through careful planning and curb appeal.

Landscape Architecture Design & Build
Working with a design-build landscape company makes the landscaping process streamlined, efficient, and headache-free. We begin by setting up a consultation and on site meeting. We listen closely to your needs and vision, then create a rendering using advanced landscape design software to give you an idea of what your new space will look like. If you’re not completely satisfied, we’ll work closely with you to meet your needs.
Lawn Care, Turf Rejuvenation, Fertilization
Edward’s Lawn & Home provides both commercial and residential grounds maintenance services. Lawns require a great deal of work to keep them looking lush and green. A correct balance of nutrients and fertilizers is necessary for your lawn to thrive. With Edward’s Lawn & Home, we make lawn care simple and easy. We take the time to understand the exact needs of your grass so that your lawn remains a beautiful backdrop for the rest of your property. For lawns that have been out of commission for some time, we provide turf rejuvenation and aeration methods to return it to health.
Residential Hardscapes, Patios, Outdoor Kitchens & Fireplaces
Thinking about improving your home’s outdoor living space? Hardscapes feature many amenities that can transform your empty yard into an outdoor living room and kitchen. A new patio, outdoor kitchen, or fireplace is a great way to entertain guests and take your home parties to the next level. We also build retaining walls to prevent soil erosion and provide stability to your landscape. Whether you’re looking for something traditional or modern, Edward’s Lawn & Home can help you plan and build a hardscape that adds both value and style to your home. Our masonry and stonework experts will also ensure that your project is built to last.
Homeowners aren’t the only ones who can benefit from hardscaping services. Businesses make their first impression through their landscape. Features like parking pads, walkways, signage courtyards, and more can make your property easier to navigate and visually attractive. Unlike plantings, hardscapes require very little maintenance, yet provide a lot of functional and aesthetic value. Our experienced designers and builders go above and beyond to create a hardscape that compliments your property.
Commercial Snow Plowing & Salting
No one wants to be caught unprepared when severe winter weather hits. Removing snow quickly is not only essential to get your business up and running again as soon as possible, but also to prevent people from navigating in dangerous conditions. Edward’s Lawn & Home are the snow removal professionals. We offer 24/7 service so that you can minimize downtime at your facility and stay accessible when your business is needed most. We can also lay down preventative salting to stop minor winter storms before they become a problem.
Outdoor lighting isn’t just for the holidays. If you’re going to be entertaining guests during the cool Fall evenings, you’ll want to ensure you’ve created the right ambience. No outdoor space is complete without the right lighting. Effective lighting not only sets the atmosphere for your yard, but can also improve your home’s security. With Edward’s Lawn & Home, we can help you create a cohesive lighting scheme that integrates with your entire landscape.
